Chanel Blush in Rose Petale

I have always been quite inquisitive about Chanel's Powder Blushes, especially after Lisa Eldridge raved about them on her YouTube channel.

I have a Powder Blush in Rose Petale to show you today.

The packaging, unlike other luxury brands out there, is pretty simplistic and classy in my opinion. The blush container is very light weight and travel friendly to be honest. Not bulky at all.



Inside you have this gorgeous dome shaped scoop of blush sitting all pretty along with a natural hair applicator brush that comes alongside. The brush is not bad in quality really and can practically be used when your on the go. But that has nothing to do with the brush's quality at all.


Coming to the blush itself, the colour is a universally flattering rose pink. It's pretty deep and bright if you know what I mean. It comes out a bit peachy sometimes on me which I am still a bit confused about. However most of the times, it is a lovely deep rose pink. Great for daytime but surely makes an elegant evening colour. Something you can't go wrong with, unless you do not like pink cheeks that is.

As for the quality of the blusher, it has this typical Chanel scent, quite pleasing I have to say. The blusher is almost undetectable on the skin. At first you do not realise the transfer of colour onto the skin until you start seeing pigments on the cheeks. It is seriously like air-brush make-up. A finish I have been looking for since ages!

This particular colour has a bit of shimmer in it which gives the cheeks an overall dewy glow. There is no hint of chunky glitter or anything of that sort of course. The quality of the powder is ingenious to the extent that you can literally apply it with your fingers and you will not go wrong. 



This may seem slightly on the higher end for £30 but if you are someone looking for an undetectable finish, high quality and foolproof application, then this will be money worth spent. 

They have some gorgeous foundations and face powders that I am eyeing now. Plus their tweed blushers look so beautiful, it would be rude not to try eh?

Any particular Chanel buys that you recommend?

It's just gorgeous, I'm yet to make a Chanel make up purchase, but when I do it will probably be blush.

i dunno if i would ever be able to afford this...but i really want to try that Vita Lumière Aqua foundation. Heard so many raves about that. x

Nilufar said...

Was gonna ask? What shade of the Soleil Tan De Chanel would you recommend for me?

Keren Leah said...

The Chanel blushers really remind me of the Bourjois ones! Do you think it lasts a little longer though?
I would recommend Chanel Aqualumiere Lipstick, I think its a really nice formula. x

It looks so pretty Shifa..the dome shape is reminding me of Bourjois Blushes (which is not surprising since its Chanels sister company). The problem i have with Bourjois is that after a while they become hard and lose their pigmentation :( . Hope thats not the case with this one. And i LOVE watching Lisa Elridge...love her concept of makeup!

@Nilufar - I think terre amber or desert bronze would look amazing on you hun!

I know, I really want to try that too, but for starters I thought a blusher would be fine as it's likely to last ages compared to a foundation :)

Get Gawjus! said...

@Keren Leah - I think they last a tad bit longer than the Bourjois ones. I agree they look similar too, but can't beat the Chanel one in texture imo :)

Get Gawjus! said...

@PeachesandBlush - They feel completely different to the Bourjois ones in overall texture, so I doubt the hardening bit will happen with this. Hopefully not!

Kim said...

Absolutely beautiful but not sure I can justify £30 on a blush. One day haha xxx

Get Gawjus! said...

@Kim - I cannot either. Only occasionally :)

Natalie @ BeauMakeup said...

That is so gorgeous. Don't know if I'd be willing to part with that much money on a blusher - but it sure is pretty!! xxx
